It's such a great score. The repetition comments aside, the central march for the battle scenes really works. Checked out the U.S. cut of BIOS vs the Japan cut, the replacement music is really dull, and undermines the battle on the moon. in the Japanese cut, Ifukube's music REALLY amps up the action.
At the 19 minute mark you can hear how lackluster the U.S. replacement score music is.
That's a strange cut of the film. Clocking in at 47mins, half the film is missing? Maybe it was some commercial television version edited down to the 1hr time slot?
Yeah, it's more like the "highlights" version, with the slower first part of the movie chopped out.
